    @Superdad Can your mmk fan kit be adapted to work with a four wire fan in a PC as well?

    Why is computer based music mostly "close but..."?

    Great song. I need to go shopping for some pre-washed jeans before they are all gone.

    SACD Ripping using an Oppo or Pioneer? Yes, it's true!

    Thanks Mikey. I see in the network from the Oppo my mac, but when trying to acces to music files from it, a password and user name is required. I have tried using the name and password utilized for opening the mac, and as well the name and password I have for Appel, and none of the two are accepted. as well when opening the ISO2DSD and introducing the Oppo IP I can not get access. But perhaps the problem is that the Chip I have in Oppo is 8550 and not 8580....

    These very compact devices are even more affected by RF/EMI due to their tight construction and PSUs just to do what they were designed for, without high quality audio ever being a consideration.

    SACD Ripping using an Oppo or Pioneer? Yes, it's true!

    thanks for your comment. I was thinking if the stick for Wire less may interfere with the riiping , since it is said that all usb shall be out fro ripping.

    SACD Ripping using an Oppo or Pioneer? Yes, it's true!

    Thanks for useful help in this topic. I have a question, is ti pssible to rip the sacd with Oppo 103 that have chip 8550? What could be the reason for not getting the oppo recognize if I correctly introduce the IP of the oppo in the ISO2 DSD window? I do not know if the problem I have is due to the chip or to the no identification of the oppo in the Iso2dsd Any help? Javier
  9. Just a quick note to say that I went through a "mad" period of trying to shield everything, on a totally conventional CDP -> amp -> speakers setup, and experimented with every combination of connecting the shields to anything else - and got the same sort of results as Peter did, . A sort of insanity overcomes one, - thank goodness, I've calmed down a bit now ... there will an optimum way of doing it, but it may take quite a bit of investigation to work that out.

    Sonicorbiter - Shairport output mode

    Yes. Set your Rendu to Shairport then go to System Preferences/Sound and choose your Rendu as the output device. You can ignore the Airplay option that’s under the YouTube window. That should do it.

    Wouldn't a MacBook Wouldn't a (fanless) MacBook be more appropriate if you were concerned about the SQ being affected by the presence of fans? Anyone try that?

    This is grotesquely off-topic now, but for the sake of answering in the first instance here is what I posted in my blog in October 2015, word for word, https://www.blogger.com/blogger.g?blogID=8257461568062445791#editor/target=post;postID=3859634021411227148;onPublishedMenu=publishedposts;onClosedMenu=publishedposts;postNum=31;src=postname: Woah, time flies!! ... That long ago ... That's part 1, there are 12 more parts to it - but further comment should be put in another thread.

    Not a bot. I have uncovered GUTB's name through exhaustive research.

    Rick Wrong Alex, but these sharp current pulses and their harmonics are radiated by the fan leads and coil as RF/EMI. You can also use devices such as the SOTM fan filter, which may be a little awkward to accommodate. Another alternative could be an aftermarket fan which usually comes with a rheostat for adjusting fan speed, or a thermistor which can be taped to the Processor etc. and run from the +12V rail. Unlike Troll, if both John and Alex C noted an improvement in SQ with the Mac Mini when using their fan filter with their PSU then I believe them !!!

    PC - cheap optimisation?

    Hi numlog Just remember that the 850 EVO will need a reasonable sized heatsink like you are currently using. You will need to make sure that the TPS7A4700 board you buy is able to take a reasonable sized heatsink. The one in the attached, for example, will be inadequate with the 850 EVO. You may also find a further increase in HF detail when using these PCBs which usually use very low ESR capacitors. Regards Alex
  22. I build all my analog cables. The balanced with starquad. The 3 pin XLR plugs usually have a ground connection and a neutral. I connect to all four with the starquad cable. No longer has the RFI rejection from starquad cabling. I feel the separate neutral and ground are more critical. The unbalanced cables are easier with less options. Always connect 1 and 3 when making a gender changing cables. That going from a four connection plug to a two connection. Used used to use locking DIN connectors. They have a ground lug also.

    or they could do something really worthwhile such as flow batteries, perovskite PV cells, carbon capture technologies, etc.
